On tap at O'Brien's Night of a Million Zillion Speedways. This is described as a "Single Origin Coffee from El Salvador, home roasted by brewer Matt akin."

Appearance is a deep brown that borders on black, with a creamy tan head exhibiting good retention and leaving scattered lacing. The aroma is quite nice, with rich dark chocolate accompanying an exquisite coffee profile that seems to be a medium roast with some earthiness and a touch of nut character. Bourbon is understated in the aroma, and I'm not really sure how it was used in this beer.

The flavor is rich chocolate with moderately bitter earthy coffee and that subtle and unique nuttiness returning. Bourbon is mellow and well integrated. Roasted malt character is at an upper moderate level. The beer finishes bittersweet, with a combination of dark chocolate, light bourbon, and coffee, with some astringency.

The beer is full bodied, mouthfeel is dry, lightly astringent, creamy, and thick. Carbonation is good on this one.

Overall, a successful and unique twist on a classic.
